Replace metal parts and assemblies with 3D printed Carbon Fiber and dissolvable supports


  • Patented VECT™ 110 (Variable Environmental Controlled Temperature) Thermal Regulation evenly heats and controls the print environment leading to parts that are 2x stronger on the z-axis, and 2x more accurate across the board.
  • The 1C Composite Extruder is engineered, optimized, and tested to withstand abrasive composite materials for maximum lifespan.
  • Dual extruders with water-soluble support material allow you to print in unlimited geometries and simplify your workflow.


  • Excellent strength to weight ratio – 110 MPa TS – for lightweighting applications such as robotic end effectors.
  • Engineering-grade stiffness with high heat resistance under load for parts that perform.
  • Composites ranging from Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber to ABS Kevlar give you flexibility on your project and rigidness in your part.
  • Print Metals, Composites, and Polymers and infinite 3rd party options with 6-in-1 Modular Performance Extruders for METHOD X.


  • Design in your favorite CAD software, then prep, print, and monitor remotely from CloudPrint™.
  • Quickly change from production composites to modeling materials with the hands-free SmartAssist™ Material Loading System.
  • Spring Steel Build Plate is durable enough to withstand thousands of prints in abrasive composites and the print pops off cleanly with a simple flex.

MakerBot Method Carbon Fiber Edition

Print carbon fiber reinforced nylon and other engineering-grade composite parts with three dimensional strength and accuracy like never before on METHOD’s unique industrial desktop platform.

Strong, Heat-Resistant Metal Replacement Parts

Carbon fiber reinforced nylon is optimized for high strength, stiffness, and heat resistance making it ideal for structural applications and metal replacements. 

  • Excellent strength to weight ratio - 110 MPa TS - for lightweighting applications such as robotic end effectors
  • Engineering-grade stiffness - 7600 MPa Tensile Modulus - for structural applications such as vehicular brackets and inspection gauges
  • High heat resistance under load - 184°C HDT - for optimal under-hood and tooling applications

Superior Nylon Carbon Fiber Parts with METHOD

METHOD’s unique industrial feature set produces carbon fiber parts with superior three dimensional strength and accuracy

  • METHOD’s Heated Chamber delivers parts that are strong and accurate.
  • Outstanding surface finish that hides layer lines thanks to METHOD’s Ultra-Rigid Metal Frame.
  • Print the most complex geometries including internal cavities with soluble support, or use breakaway support for faster print times.
  • METHOD’s sealed filament bays help keep the material dry, resulting in better print quality and reliability, and METHOD’s pre-print spool drying feature allows for the recovery of oversaturated filament.

While MakerBot 3D printers are intuitive, sometimes it’s good to get real insight from someone who has used the platform extensively. That’s why with MakerCare you get access to a 1-hour training session with a certified MakerBot Support Engineer where they will walk you through basic set up, usage, and bonus tips and tricks, while answering any questions you may have along the way.

Machine downtime is not ideal for any business. You’ve got projects that need to get done and we understand. MakerCare has your back with hot swap. If your printer goes down, our support engineers will get you back up and running asap. Just call or email to get the process started. If the problem can be resolved with a quick part or setting change we’ll do that. If the printer needs to be sent back, we’ll ship out a replacement machine via overnight - even before you’ve sent yours back - so you can be back up and running in no time.

Replacement Parts diagramReplacement Parts diagram


Do you have a wear component or a damaged part that you can fix without packing up the printer and sending it in? In addition to defective parts already covered by the standard warranty, MakerCare provides part replacement on both natural wear and accidental damage so you can get back up and running even faster.
